CMRA expands award program

Two new categories of recognition, including a C&D Recycling Hall of Fame, have been developed by the Construction Materials Recycling Association. The awards will be announced at C&D World, the association’s Annual Meeting to be held April 20 – 23 in Tampa, Florida.

Also new is the Member Of The Year Award bestowed on the association member who has done the most to advance the association’s agenda during the past year. In addition, the association will continue to honor the most important person in C&D recycling with its annual C&D Recycler of the Year Award.

“The establishment of a Hall of Fame provides a way to spotlight the pioneers and leaders in the C&D industry,” said John Adelman, current CMRA president and president and CEO of CPRC Group. “But our goal with all these awards is to recognize excellence within the C&D recycling industry. It always means more when the recognition comes from one’s peers.”

Nominations will be reviewed and winners determined by a committee of CMRA. Entries are due by March 1, 2013 and can be sent via e-mail to
